Bless Our Community This Christmas

Booker T Washington Elementary School

Many of their families face financial hardships, and rely on school meal programs to feed their children. We have offered to supply Christmas dinners to families who have been identified by their staff who would be blessed by such a gift. We have a set menu, and would ask you to purchase these food items for a specific family, costing approximately $30. Pledge your meal today so we know how many families we can offer to assist.

Common Good Christmas Store

Embrace Church offers after school programming for kids in North Lexington, helping with homework and mentoring. Through their Christmas Store, families are given the opportunity to purchase donated gifts at 80-90% off retail price. Wish lists are collected and we will have the opportunity to fill some of those lists for these families, offering them a dignified experience to purchase gifts for their kids.
